LeBron, Akron Zoo jaguar, to leave Ohio for Florida
Whether NBA superstar LeBron James is staying with the Cleveland Cavaliers is still a big question, but the Akron Zoo said Thursday that it will say goodbye to another LeBron, a jaguar born there last year.
By mid-June, the cat is going to the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, Fla., in hopes he'll produce offspring with a female jaguar named Masaya.
Zoo spokesman David Barnhardt says the jaguar LeBron got his name in a contest.
LeBron James grew up in Akron and once lived on a street just outside the zoo entrance. He can become a free agent this summer, and there's been massive speculation about whether he'll stay in his home state, with Cleveland.
